Welcome to the VintageRex.com Online Paintball Museum!
VintageRex.com is dedicated to the collection and preservation of Paintball's History. By archiving photos, ad scans, manuals, and more, we hope to keep the knowledge of Paintball's Past alive.
This site is fully searchable. The Marker Exhibit can be viewed by Manufacturer, Marker, and Type of Marker just in case you don't know the name.
As you can see, this is a work in progress, so not all the information is currently available. We hope to steadily add to the site and fill out the data.
Please view the Donate section to see how you can help out by submitting Ad Scans, Articles, and Information.
Of course, we have an online forum, so that collectors may gather together and network. Chit chat about paintball, collecting, or post your wares in the classifieds.
Do you have a love for the history and collecting the sport as much as we do? We are currently taking applications for curators. The pay is lousy, and the bosses jerks, but we need dedicated people to help enter data. If you think you have what it takes, contact us and tell us why we should appoint you as a curator.

Paintball Museum Spotlight - Misc - Miscellaneous Manufacturers Frank Gun
Manufacturer: Misc - Miscellaneous Manufacturers
The Frank Gun, was made by Frank Postle. There were a total of 26 of these made.
They were drop on kits for a Nelspot, and originally cost $125 for the kit. The barrel is steel and one piece. It was a double sided pump (two arms). This was the first long barrel Nelson of all time. The team was the Wolfpack of Southern California.
The one shown is a magnificent Carter upgrade to the original Frank gun. However, note that it is so Carterized that it does not even look like the original Frank guns. The original had the Nelson grip frame. This has the Carter frame which came later. It has a lot of Carter upgrades also that just weren't around at the time the Frank guns came out. Only the Wolfpack was allowed to buy these kits.
Wolfpack won the Sat Cong Village 1986 Challenge (15-player tournament format) using these guns. Wolfpack wore the most rag tag collection of ripped and torn camouflage ever to grace a paintball field. We were not supposed to win - the home teams from SC were very tough at home. And so the legend grew.
